Rehab Care Center

IRMC is YOUR Primary Stroke Center

  • The American Heart Association recommends initial rehab following stroke take place in an in-patient rehab rather than a skilled nursing facility.
  • That leads to reduced mortality rates, enhanced recovery and increased independence in activities of daily living.
  • Our stroke rehab program starts as soon as the patient is ready and can tolerate it.
  • Our focus is to help patients return home sooner, regain loss and prevent complications.
